Some reasons to tell your stories (they’re much more important than you think)
How well you tell your story can make the difference to anything you do – whether that’s convincing someone to love you, buy something you’ve made, or give something of themselves; or how well you make your way in the world; or, simply, in sharing who you are.

In short, stories are prescriptions for courage. They illustrate how to run the race. And win. We are not born with courage. We may possess bravado, even arrogance. Youth normally does.

Own your own narrative, risk your vulnerability, and tell your stories well. Do Story provides brilliant help for the journey.
